Parent Gets Note From Teacher For Getting Daughter Personalized Stationary for School


Summer has almost ended, and families are getting out of the summer vacation mood and into the ‘back to school’ rhetoric. Yes, it’s that time of the year – it’s time to start going back to bed early, and start getting supplies for class.

Well, it turns out that it’s not as seamless a process as it seems. Redditor u/BlueCarrot002 recently shared their story on the popular Am I The A-hole subreddit and wanted to know if they were in the wrong for buying personalized stationery for their daughter Mia so it can’t be redistributed in class.

You see, Mia, their nine-year-old daughter, starts at a new school, and the parent received a list of everything the girl needed for the school year.

The parent put a lot of effort into preparing their daughter’s backpack, and they didn’t want the contents to be redistributed to other children. So, they decided to personalize the items.

Mia’s teacher was not keen on that decision, and she now requested to have a serious conversation with the parent. Reconsidering their decision, they decided to take it to Reddit’s popular Am I The A-hole sub and ask whether they were in the wrong to personalize the items.

Although the opinions were divided, most people thought that the parent had every right to personalize Mia’s items, so they voted that the parent is not the a-hole here.
